Scott Ritter: Weapons of Mass Delusion


Publication date 2006
In the months before March 2003, protesters around the world were joined by heads of state, U.N. officials, and religious leaders speaking out against the invasion. They labeled it a "war of aggression." But while these events were unfolding, Scott Ritter, a former intelligence officer holding the rank of Major in the U.S. Marine Corps, was warning Americans that they were being manipulated. From 1991 to 1998, he led the U.N. weapons inspection team in Iraq. He was the world's foremost expert on Saddam Hussein's weapons program. Ritter's team was able to determine the true status of the weapons program in Iraq, which was essentially inoperative and posed no immediate threat either to America or Iraq's neighbors. In his speech before a Los Angeles audience, Ritter gives his analysis of the real reasons for the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Producers: Ed Sweed & John Odam (2003)
